Gong Xi Fa Cai 2015

Welcome Year of the Goat! Or sheep...  Aren't they different? In case you're wondering, here are the summarized differences:

1.  A goat is more slender of the two, while a sheep is tubbier.
2.  Sheep belong to the Ovas Aries species and have 54 chromosomes while goats belong to     Capra Hircus species and have 6o chromosomes.
3.  A goat’s tail is for most part stands up while a sheep’s hangs down.
4.  A goat is a typical browser, feeding on leaves, shrubs, twigs and vines. A sheep on the other hand loves to graze on grass and clover.
5.  Goats are curious by nature and are quite independent. A sheep on the other hand prefers to stay put in its flock.
6.  While a goat has hair a sheep has fleece.
7.  A goat has a beard while a sheep has a mane.
8.Wild goats are found in abundance and by all accounts sheep are entirely domesticated.

Our entire household was in Seremban. Including rice cooker, slow cooker, bowls, chopsticks and serving dishes. The kitchen in the Seremban home (the husband's hometown) had been unused for a few years now, so it was a bit tricky listing down my To-Bring list. I had to buy the entire range of essential seasoning for Chinese cooking ie. sesame oil, soy sauce, oyster sauce, Chinese wine, vinegar (because I cooked pig's trotters OMG sooo gooood), salt, sugar (white and brown) and pepper.

And so, I cooked... and cooked. And ate... and ate. And slept... and slept. Ngiah ngiah ngiah.

I didn't take ANY pictures, didn't post ANYTHING on Facebook or Instagram as usual. Heehee.

Then we came back on Saturday. I got to meet my Convent kawan kawan. I got to finish the wedding invites I was doing halfway. I got to visit Daniel's babysitter, she's an awesome auntie. I got to have dinner with my mom and my aunt who has moved back here from Japan for good. 

And then, I'm back for work! Lucky me, I woke up late but the jam was not bad at all! Chai Sen Yieh had given me more sleep! 

I hope you had an awesome CNY celebration :)
